3D TV sales to soar, says researcher

But not straight away

How's this for synchronicity? According to one market watcher, 3D TVs will account for three per cent of world telly sales this year.

Displaybank today forecast that some 6.2m 3D TVs will ship in 2010, 5m of the LCDs, the rest plasma panels.

The total number of 3D sets will rise to 33m in 2012 then on to 83m in 2014, it predicted. By then, 3D TVs will account for 31 per cent of the telly market.

So the researcher is right to say "it will take some time for 3D TV to enter mainstream".

Displaybank's three per cent forecast puts the year's total telly sales at 206.7m units. Come 2014, the tally will be 267.7m, a rise of 29.5 per cent over four years. By contrast, 3D TV shipments will rocket by 1238.7 per cent over the same period.

Displaybank's numbers are an improvement on figures released by fellow research company DisplaySearch. In January, DisplaySearch forecast 3D TV sales of 1.2m in 2010, rising to 64m in 2018. ®
